Abha Rai wins UGA grant to study domestic violence

 

As a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Social Work at the University of Georgia, Athens, Abha Rai gathers data on the perceptions of domestic violence in South Asian communities.

This year, along with two other graduate students, she received a grant from the Giving Voice to the Voiceless Fund. Established by Charlayne Hunter-Gault (a notable, pathbreaking African-American TV journalist) and Ron Gault, the fund allows the recipients to study and promote the welfare of voiceless communities.

Rai, who had earlier studied in India and gained twelve years of international community experience, will extend her focus from Athens to the South Asian communities of Atlanta and Chicago.
